The Mid-week Music Video Mini-Reviews Youtube Round-Up – 11/28/13

The music video round-up is a little thing this week, but it’s understandable considering the holiday festivities. We hope you are spending time some quality time with those you love the most (even if it’s yourself). We’ve got a lot to be feel blessed for and we hope you are able to say the same. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Jason Chen – “Unexpectedly”

This is from Jason’s What If acoustic project, and if things look extra sharp this time around, it’s because of Ross Ching. The video’s got his trademark simple yet crisp touch to it, and that’s the perfect tone for nearly any acoustic song.

Dia Frampton Features for The Crystal Method – “Over It”

There’s some tongue-in-cheek humor with this video. I wasn’t sure what to expect for the visual for this collaboration but when all is said and done, it makes sense. I mean… this is still a Crystal Method track, only sweetened a little bit with Dia’s soft vocals.

Spazzkid – “40 Winks”

If you’re looking for something a little more chill, look no further than Spazzkid’s video for “40 Winks”. The ambient/chill/dreampop soundscapes set to a montage of Tokyo footage make for a slightly ethereal experience. It’s as if food-coma has set in… on your ears. Consider me a new fan.

Dia Frampton Features for “Never Shout Never” – “Under the Mistletoe”

It’s cute, it’s light, it’s folk-pop & holiday spirit done right. Not much to say about the video since it’s pretty much just a studio MV, although I think you’ll find the song itself has far more longevity. You can add this one to your Christmas playlist too add a little bit of variety.

New Heights – “Other Side”

The song was originally featured in the Jubilee Project short, Fireflies. But now the group has re-recorded the track and modified the video with some new footage to make it more of a standard MV. I can’t say it’s any more or less effective than the original, but it still speaks to an important issue.
